Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
To a university like Wolverhampton which has a proud record of serving its communities going back over 180 years, the issues of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are of paramount importance.
As the University of Opportunity, it is crucial that we do everything we can to enable all individuals to succeed. This is not simply about promoting acceptance of equal opportunity for all, that is giving everyone the identical opportunity but is more about recognising the different journeys people have in front of them, understanding and meeting their needs.
Our vision is to create an inclusive work and study environment by:
- Identifying and addressing Institutional, structural and cultural inequalities to ensure both staff and students can reach their full potential.
- Ensuring all staff and students are treated with respect and dignity in a safe environment.
- Creating a diverse workforce that reflects local demographics and our student population, at all levels within the University.
- Utilising and valuing the diverse skills, experience and knowledge of our staff and students.
